The place was perfect for our stay on the Hilo side!

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable and just enough kitchen to cook a few meals. And Greg was helpful when we needed something. The upper deck was great for evening cocktails and morning coffee - what a great sunrise!

Great place and hosts, great views, well equipped and perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

This has to be one of the best places to stay on this side of the island. We were greeted by Marie and felt welcome right from the start! The guest house is perfect, roomy, nicely decorated and very well equipped with everything you need to make your stay perfect. The deck with a great observation tower, overlooks one of the best beaches where you can watch the surfers ride big waves. Bring your binoculars or they would probably lend you a pair. It's a 5 min. walk across the street to see them up close. Great sunset views with palm trees for awesome photos. Great location, close to lots of sights. We would definitely stay here again. Mahalo Marie & Gregg!

Fantastic Hosts, Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

This rental was perfect. It is easy access to the Hawiian Belt Rd and very close to Hilo. We enjoyed sitting upstairs each morning enjoying a coffee and watching the surfers. Marie was wonderful.

Nifty Setting and Nice Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

It was pretty cool to climb the spiral staircase, escorted by the owner's friendly dogs who otherwise seem to own that high perch, and then enjoy morning coffee while scanning the horizon for pirate ships, whales, and surfers. Well, one out of three was good enough. We watched plenty of local surfers right down below us at that black sand beach. It's a 2 minute walk to the beach itself, out the back gate and down the street behind. The guest unit behind the owner's beautiful house is nicely furnished with a comfy bed and sofa/bed, and a well-equipped kitchen. The air-conditioning worked well to enable cool sleep and its low rumbling sound muted those pesky coqui frogs that chirp and whistle all night outside, all over this island. We appreciated using the owner's laundry room that was accessible directly off the back patio where she grows orchids. The owner provides clear and complete information as a guide to the Hilo area, access to their wifi, etc. The TV controller was easy to work (not always so elsewhere!). The owner was very prompt in responding to our email questions before we arrived and graciously supplied a couple of extra things we asked for. The location a couple of miles north of Hilo's downtown was easy to find and quite handy for touring the whole east side of the Big Island. This was a great base of operations for our four busy days in the Hilo area, being very relaxing to come home to. We have also stayed at resorts and condos in other places, and much preferred the at-home atmosphere here since we don't need the extra services of a resort like swimming pools, exercise rooms, play areas for kids, etc.

We toured all of the east half of the Big island over four days, taking in Akaka Falls, Rainbow Falls, volcanos, lava flows, a beach warmed by geothermal springs in the Puna area, and remnants of "old Hawaii" in the surrounding areas. We loved driving the scenic routes off the main highways, savoring narrow roads with one-way bridges, and the frequent cases of "tree tunnels" overarching the roadways, the Waipio Valley to the north, and the cattle ranch area out near Waimea to the north. The active volcano, Kilauea, is worth a whole day, but be sure to watch the fireworks at sunset from the Jaggar Museum. We couldn't reach the active lava flow at the seashore because it's a 2-3 mile walk from either end of the closed road. Moana Kea Visitor Center at 9.000 feet elevation was also great.

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

A great property! Comfortable clean and organized. Great location and loved the surfing beach. The deck is great and a beautiful property. The owner is really nice and takes great pride in her property and you can tell with all the nice touches. If we are able to come back we will stay there again.
